All Stitched Up


Something a little different from me today, no stamping, inks or mess. This is the very first stitching card I have done. The template / pattern I bought from Stitching Cards Com.

For the main card, I used a white A5 sized card and dry embossed a design at the top and bottom of the card using my shapeboss. I then used a piece of white card and pricked the holes in the correct place and then stitched using metallic threads. When the stitching was done I layered it onto some copper mirror card and then added it to the A5 card.

This card first in nicely with My Time To Craft challenge, which this week is "In Stitches"

I'm so impressed with your work (and your patience!) What a lovely, crisp design.

I could never attempt anything like that as I'm not too good with a needle and thread, lol.

Well done! :)
